Free Online Classes for Artists

June 1, 2010

NEW YORK CITY, NY -- Americans for the Arts reports that Fractured Atlas, a nonprofit arts support organization based in New York City, is offering online courses for artists free of charge.

There are currently six courses on topics such as marketing, fundraising, and professional identity; two video workshops on independent contractors vs. employees; and a wellness program for dancers, with more to be added during the coming months.

These courses provide a great introduction to the confusing and daunting process of being a professional independent artist. Courses include embedded video segments by experts, optional assignments, opportunities to participate in discussions on their message boards, and links to further resources.

In order to access the courses, you must sign up to be a member of Fractured Atlas and membership is free.

Fractured Atlas also offers other resources like fiscal sponsorship opportunities and healthcare resources for artists.
